Floating your boat Shetland style

Five boats have been suspended in mid-air as part of preparations for the new Shetland Museum and Archives.
A towering hall is a feature of the new museum in Lerwick, which is due to open to the public in Spring 2007.

The boats have been winched into position in their new home, up to 14m high.

Elevated viewing platforms on each of the floors of the main building will give visitors a series of views of the suspended boats.
